Amniotic Stem Cell in Ocala FL
Human Derived Cell Therapy:
An alternative source of stem cells is amniotic fluid and human placenta tissue. These tissues are an incredibly rich source of stem cells. Stem cells from this source are abundant in quantity and have excellent potential to differentiate and become other tissues to aid in tissue healing and regeneration.
They have significantly more biological potential than adult stem cells. Although they do not have quite as much biologic potential as embryonic-derived stem cells, there are no ethical issues associated with obtaining amniotic-derived stem cells as opposed to obtaining embryonic stem cells.
In addition to having a high concentration of stem cells, amniotic fluid also contains a significant amount of growth factors, anti-inflammatory materials and hyaluronic acid.
Amniotic derived stem cells have the potential to aid in the treatment of a variety of orthopedic conditions. These cells are injected into the injured or degenerative area in an effort to stimulate tissue healing or regeneration. The most common proposed uses for amniotic derived stem cells in orthopedics include arthritis, chronic tendinitis, and ligament sprains.
The full potential of amniotic derived stem cells is not yet fully understood and it is quite likely that further research will show that amniotic derived stem cells may be useful in the treatment of many other conditions treated by orthopedic surgeons. The amniotic stem cell material is processed at an FDA regulated lab and has been shown to be "immuno-privileged." This means it does not produce any rejection reactions in the human body.

Ankle Testimonial - I had excruciating pain in my ankle due to bone on bone arthritis. My doctor gave me the option of having a fusion or a complete ankle replacement. Both surgeries would require me to be off my feet for three months. I was about ready to schedule an appointment with the surgeon when I heard about IHC. I contacted them and they reviewed my x rays and mri and told me they thought that stem cell and prp injections would benefit me. I had the injections on June 24 of this year and I'm thrilled to say that my pain has diminished, I can walk without pain, I'd say my pain is 80% improved and it's not even been two months! I've never been more pleased with a medical procedure. Unfortunately, insurance does not cover this which is a crock if you ask me. I could have had a surgery that would have cost in excess of $40,000 which insurance would have to cover versus covering one stem cell injection! I don't care though because I'm more pain free than I've been in two years! Thanks IHC!

Shoulder & Neck Pain Testimonial - Originally, my shoulder and neck pain issues started after I had a severe car accident. A torn bicep and torn rotator cuff injury created constant pain in my right shoulder and arm. Initially, I thought I had escaped major problems but after a few months, I started to experience significant weakness and pain in my right arm. My doctor at the time prescribed me powerful pain medication that nearly made me addicted to them and really left me feeling groggy. After seeing multiple doctors and physical therapists, I was left feeling like I had to accept that pain was to be apart of my life. I had stumbled upon information about Stem Cell therapy and found a local provider with the Stem Cell Institute. He sat down with me and for the first time I felt like someone understood what was causing my arm pain and had a real solution. So I started with an injection on my shoulder blade, which I almost felt an immediate relief. After a month and a half, I started to get the strength back in my arm. My pain decreased by about 80% and I only had an occasional soreness and stiffness. Now, 7 months later, I feel like a new person. My shoulder and neck pain are completely gone. I have full strength in my arm and hands and I even started to work out and again with a trainer.

Knee Testimonial - Before I tried stem cell therapy, I was having trouble just walking even 5 minutes. Walking up stairs had gotten so painful that I moved my bedroom downstairs to avoid having to go up and down them. Every day, I just felt constant debilitating pain in both knees and eventually got to the point where I couldn't do my favorite activities anymore. Walking was next to impossible and spending time with my family was always difficult because I just couldn't put pressure on my legs. My Orthopedic surgeon told me that they would have to do a full knee replacement and take almost a year to rehabilitate me. I decided to try one more thing before going under the knife for a last time and that's when I found the Stem Cell Institute. It's been almost 5 months since I had my first treatment and I can honestly say that I'm pain free for the first time in years. Losing my favorite activities and then having the chance to now do these again has felt like getting a second chance. Not only feeling better but seeing the changes on my x-rays has been incredible. I would definitely do it again if I had too. I recommend stem cells therapy to anyone with chronic knee pain.
